Pink Siifu is the latest artist to participate in Sounds of Saving and the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline’s “Song That Found Me at the Right Time” series. He chose to cover Gonjasufi’s “Sheep,” performing the 2010 track with his partner, the musician Ss.Sylver, in a video directed by Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty. Watch it below.
“I feel like people just need to be reminded and see people who’ve been in the dark or in the funk and then got past that. I think that’s always inspirational,” Pink Siifu remarked in a press statement. “It’s always the underdog story to be like, ‘I can do that too.’ So I think that is beautiful. I think everyone should be inspired by triumph and trying to evolve themselves and push through. That’s why I love Kobe Bryant. I just love artists who really push through all the time. And you can find that in anything, music, sports, writing, boxing, all that. Anybody who can get over something and push through, like no matter what, no matter how crazy it is—that’s important.”
This year, Pink Siifu has released collaborative albums with Ahwlee and Turich Benjy, Leather Blvd. and It’s Too Quiet..’!!, respectively. His latest solo effort, Gumbo’!, came out in 2021, and a deluxe edition followed in 2022.
